Unfortunately when governments get involved in making our decisions, those decisions don't always turn out to be for the greater good. I always try to remember that the people making these decisions "for us" are just human beings that are also capable of making errors. The thing I fear the most is that once governments enact laws, there will always be radicals out there trying to twist those laws and using those laws for their own agenda whether that be right or wrong.
I see this law as something that could be used and taken out of context and do more harm than good - we've already seen how things can be taken out of context just in this thread alone. That's what scares me the most.
Also, lets not forget laws at a much higher level, like Federal and State. Your special interest groups, like the big animal rights organizations who have huge sums of money, pay for lobbyists to get laws pushed in THEIR favor. That IS happening now, I can tell you this. I am so much involved with legislation at state and federal level.. That is how I know that these small laws, such as the one in in this thread, are nothing more than a first step to a much larger plan. These laws are made to make you think they are for a good cause, but in the long run and in the end, they are for a totally different agenda.
